IBM multimedia backup enclosure can accommodate up to two tape drives, two RDX docking stations, or up to four DVD-RAM drives. The 6190 offers SAS, USB, and fiber channel electronic interface drive options.
The IBM multimedia backup enclosure delivers external tape, removable disk drive, and DVD-RAM drive options that allow data transfer within similar archival storage and retrieval technologies already installed in existing IT facilities.
Removable RDX drives are in a rugged cartridge that inserts in an RDX 3.0 removable disk docking station. RDX drives are also compatible with docking stations installed internally in IBM System x servers.
The 6190 offers Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) maintenance service to help make installation or replacement of new drives efficient. Other 6190 Model 1U3 components are also designed for CRU maintenance.
